Tech News

Do you smell that? No. Not that. The other smell? It’s new computer smell! Mmmmm. New keyboard typing. It’s so weird but so fun. Exotic almost! Damn, and the screen is fucking huge. Huge! I CAN BLOW, SHIT, WAIT, WHY’S THAT LIGHT ON? Oh, caps lock was on. Anyway, I can blow up this page and make the letters appear as ginormous monster-sized letters. That’s cool. Do the letters look super shiny and new to you? Can you tell that this keyboard sounds and feels different? That the screen is so huge I unconsciously keep scooting my chair back as my mother’s voice screeches “move back you’re too close to the tv!”? Wow. I mean this thing is so tidy. I haven’t gunked it up with lectures, messy data files, tweed porn downloads, various writings, and monkey pictures yet. (And FYI new computer: I like to make up words, get used to it, but “gunked” is a word where I come from! Ginormous too!) Anyway, enjoy your contact high of fancy new computer smell while I play all the games new computers come with! (until I make myself delete them)

    I'm treating myself to a netbook this week. My screen will be ittybitty but no more lugging a laptop around.

  3. Congratulations! I just got a new computer on Friday, and it, too, has that new computer smell. It starts up and shuts down in, like, 5 seconds. And PS, "gunked" is totally a word!

  4. I share the feeling of ginormous screen. I got a new iMac last summer and when the tech guy delivered it, I was stunned. It's bigger than my home TV - and I still feel like I need to move it across the room...

  5. Ugghhh. Bleary eyed. Must adjust to huge screen- feel like I'm in Minority Report.

  6. New computers used to make me feel so fresh and clean. However, now computers are smart enough to let me import all the files I don't need, all the settings I forgot I changed, and all the icons cluttering up my desktop with the click of a button. Now the only thing I get is the jolt of an excitement that comes with picking an artsy-yet-tolerable new background.

    Also, could not help thinking of you when I saw this: http://www.mcsweeneys.net/links/monologues/15comicsans.html

  9. Oh, and I too was just granted a new setup in the office. The screen is ginormous and the computer itself is tiny. Actually asked the tech people why we need screens that large while we're whittling down the keyboards and actual computer? Their answer: You Can Watch Movies.

    So they're actually encouraging us to indulge in our Netflix addictions instead of working? Cool!
